Nîmes, even the romans loved it!

Southern France is full of treasures. Nîmes is one of them. Capital of the Gard department in the Languedoc-Roussillon area, this city is firmly rooted in its Roman past, since it is located right on the Via Domitia which used to link Italy to Spain.

About France

In Nîmes and its surroundings, you will be able to touch the Roman era in just one blink. From the Roman amphitheater up to the Pont-du Gard (an impressive aqueduct), you will be impressed.

Of course, don’t miss the famous Maison Carrée in the old Nîmes. It is one of worldwide best-preserved temples of the Roman period. But Nîmes is also known for its mediterranean climate, and its textile industry, as the original denim for blue jeans stems from there.

Pick up your sandals and sunglasses. Relax and enjoy the place where sunbathes, sea, cicadas choir and good wines are at hand.

    Nimes - Carcassone by TGV | Arthur p. | 2015/09/20
    "Interesting trip - usual TGV comfort and smoothness once we had found our way through the mountain of large suitcases and the milling mob in the entry to the carriage. Most surprising was the Amazon who appeared from out of the mob with her two very large dogs... not sure how there was space for all three of them. Carcassone station also well located on the edge of town just over the Canal. "

    Avignon - Nimes by intercity | Arthur p. | 2015/09/20
    "Showing the composition of the train is very helpful in finding your car, particularly when the stop is brief. Second class is quite comfortable and roomy, and more than acceptable. Avignon railway station very well located close to the old town, and very accessible. "

    Excellent trip | Leigh b. | 2015/07/08
    "Easy experience. Train departed and arrived on time. The only minor problems were actually getting on to the train with our luggage. The train arrival and display of platform number is not long before the departure, so there is a very crowded platform as everyone tries jostles along to find their carriage. We had luggage for two adults and two children and were very relieved to be able to fit it all in the luggage racks. "

    "The TGV itself was a very comfortable, fast and convenient to connect to flights to and from CDG. My only quibble was the waiting area at CDG which could have been bigger. "
